Any suggestion how much this Mk II of Microcord should cost?
I paid £70 for an excellent Microcord MkII with a case, I wouldn't pay more than £100. The Ross xpres lens on mine is the sharpest of all my TLR lenses and that includes an Opton Tessar and Xenotar.
Thanks indeed. One gentleman wanted to offer €85 without shipping for Mk II with case. I thinking to ask for €75 for everything.
€85 plus shipping is a very fair price, if you get it for less it's a bargain
Microcords are well made but according to Basil Skinner's book on MPP the owner states that there were issues with Microcord lens collimation, Like the Reid Leica copies and MPP Micro Technical these were all better than the German cameras they copied, but then the German manufacturers had progressed to newer models Particularly Leica.
Any words on how the lenses were collimated in Mk II.
No, it's in Basil Skinner's book but I've never heard it elsewhere, I don't rate Basil Skinner's book as he lies about the MPP Graflex tie up, where MPP sold adapted Speed Graphics as Micro Press cameras.
If that kicks Xenotars a*** then it should be pretty good lens. Also the film advance and focus knobs on right-hand side and it will make flash fotography with hammer heads easier.
